After the completion of the NBA Finals, the sports books had the 2023 champion Denver Nuggets as the favorites going into next season. They weren’t so kind when it comes to the 2023 NHL champion Vegas Golden Knights…

For the 2023-24 season, the oddsmakers have the Boston Bruins and Colorado Avalanche as the teams to beat, both at +800.

Behind them are the Toronto Maple Leafs (+900), Edmonton Oilers (+1000), New Jersey Devils/Carolina Hurricanes (+1200), and then the Vegas Golden Knights (+1300). Close behind that batch are the other team in the Finals, the Florida Panthers, at +1400, alongside the New York Rangers.

Both the Avs and Nuggets parades were cool the last two years, but how cool would it be to have them both in one year?
